The Christopher Columbus Cemetery in Havana, Cuba, is a cultural landmark, but not just for its history. The tallest monument in the cemetery marks the burial place of all the city's firefighters who have died in the line of duty since the 1890s.
After the Cuban Revolution, the site of an abandoned water tower had become a dumping ground for a mountain of garbage in a corner of Havana. A few visionary artists decided to reclaim it and turn it into a cultural center, bringing the arts to the children of the community.
The island of St. Croix, in the U.S. Virgin Islands, is beautiful, peaceful, and luxurious... which is what most visitors are looking for in a Caribbean island. But if you are in search of something a little more rugged, St. Croix offers the Island Survival workshop at Mt. Victory Camp. Watch Matt Corriando demonstrate how to start a fire. This video is a little longer than one minute, but, hey!... the man is doing it withoutmatches.
Visit the Caribbean island of Bonaire, in the Dutch Antilles. The caves are a hidden treat. This one is partially filled with fresh ground water, perfect for snorkeling or free diving. Leo Hoogenboom of Flow Bonaire is our guide.
There are lots of options on Bonaire, which is only 50 miles off the coast of Venezuela. For example, in only one afternoon, you can learn an exciting new sport at the Windsurf Place...
... or you can help restore the Buddy Dive Resort coral bed, which was damaged by storms and disease.
Take your pick!
